Join us for an evening with folk trio Palmyra at Citizen Vinyl on Thursday, October 26. 7 p.m. show / 6 p.m. doors. $15 advance / $20 at the door. Neo-folk songwriter and performer Vandiver opens the show.
Established in the Shenandoah Valley, Palmyra explores the fusion of traditional folk string instruments, three part harmonies and foot percussion. In 2022, Palmyra made their Newport Folk Festival debut, were named the FloydFest 2022 On The Rise Winner, and performed over 200 tour dates on acclaimed stages up and down the East Coast. The trio captures the collective spirit of three Virginia natives, Teddy (he/him), Manoa (he/him), and Sasha (they/them). Palmyra’s songs are intimate and contemplative, with arrangements that allow them to create the illusion of a full, larger-than-three ensemble. The trio’s sound is a nod to Appalachia and Midwestern Americana, apparent through their stirring craftsmanship and dedication to a folk-driven, innovative experience throughout each live performance.
Vandiver is the moniker of Asheville Neo-folk songwriter and performer, Andrew Hammond.
Born and raised In Hall County Georgia at the southern tip of Appalachia, Vandiver would find its musical beginnings farther north, in Brooklyn, NY. A bit of alchemy happens when a gentle folk singer is wrung through the cogs of a hundred apathetic gutter punk dive bars. Vandiver’s nylon stringed guitar and his meticulous “every word counts” approach to songwriting, support a soulful, delicate and explosive vocal show. Since the release of the What May Rot EP, and a move to the vibrant music scene of Asheville, NC. Vandiver’s music has leaned even deeper into the support of its Appalachian roots.
